DIY Lego Inspired Door Sign

Hi there!  It’s been too long!  I’ve been working my little crafty butt off lately which is great for the shop but I’ve missed this little space!  However, today I wanted to share the easiest little DIY I did to personalize Gav’s room.  If you have a kiddo between the ages of 4 and about 14, you are no stranger to the tiny little plastic blocks of pain that are Legos.  Stepping on a Lego is next level pain because A – they’re sharp B – it’s the tender part of your foot C – you’re probably irritated that they weren’t picked up after saying it 500 times.  So, I thought I’d put a little humorous spin on the plight of every Lego mom out there.Continue reading

Gav + Ro's Playroom Tour

I’m so thrilled to finally be sharing another finisher space in my house!  I feel like all I ever do is plan and Pinterest board my ideas to death and they never actually come to be.  But I’m changing that with project sheets (I’ll share about that soon!) and it’s working!  This particular level of our house used to be completely different and fairly haphazard but with a complete (unexpected) basement renovation, it was the perfect opportunity to change some things around.  Continue reading

DIY Target Art Knockoff

DIY Target Art Knockoff

Since getting our basement back in order, I’ve had the opportunity to redo do the boys play area and gained an office. (All the praise hands and heart eyes!) I love the freedom of completely redesigning a space. You can declutter, regroup, rearrange, and, my favorite part, SHOP! While perusing the aisles of all my favored decor spots, I saw a common style at Target (from the Pillowfort line to be exact) that I loved but didn’t quite want to pay the price. I wondered if there was a way I could recreate it and this is what I came up with.Continue reading

Fingerprint Wreath Ornaments

In DIY

DIY Fingerprint Ornament

I absolutely love using things my kids have made as decor of the holidays. All the little handprints, foot prints, and crazy painted items have a very special place in our home. If you ask my family though, I tend to have a slight obsession with ornaments. I love putting up the tree and breaking out all the fun ornaments from places we’ve been and the family ones showing how much we’ve grown. This year I decided to make something special for both my boys to make for this year’s tree.

What You’ll Need: Round Ceramic Ornament, Round Sticker, Green Paint, Modge Podge (or other sealant), Red Jewels, E6000 (or other strong adhesive), Paint Pen

DIY Fingerprint Ornament

DIY Fingerprint OrnamentPlace a round sticker (I just created one with some wash tape and parchment paper) on the center of the ornament. Now your kids can go to town putting little green finger prints all over the empty space. Make sure that they stick with just small finger prints rather than spreading it all together.

Let the paint dry then seal it with Modge Podge. Once the sealant is dry you can place your gems around the wreath like holly berries. Using a tooth pick helps keep your fingers from getting too sticky and makes placement easier.

Write a favorite seasonal word (and of course, name and year on the back) in the center and you’re ready to decorate your tree!

Looking forward to finding a special place on the tree for these two!

Space Party Photo Booth

Space themed party photo booth

Welcome to part two of Ro’s second birthday party, the photo booth!  I love photo booths.  Call them cliche, call them basic, I don’t care because they are so much fun.  Whether they’re full of props or just a place to document who was there, I think a photo booth is a always great idea.

The hardest part of all of this was definitely getting the little ones to cooperate.  But you do the best you can with what you’ve got which is why the picture of both my boys is Gav with a helmet on from bike riding and Ro trying desperately to get the sunglasses to go on his face.  For my props, I found a few things round the house (i.e. the gold frame and left over party favor glasses).Continue reading

Roman's 2nd Trip Around The Sun

It’s almost surreal to think that just a little over 2 years ago I was sharing my pregnancy journey with little Ro.  Now he’s a big boy two year old.  And I do mean big!  We just had his check up and we’re up there in the percentiles.

We had so much fun celebrating him this past Saturday with a sun, moon, and stars themed party.  I especially loved planning this one because black and gold are two of my favorite colors and this party had a ton of both!  Be sure to scroll to the bottom for details on where you can find some of the decorations.  ENJOY!Continue reading

No Sew Bible Cover
Sometimes I get these urges to redo or completely make over something I already have.  My ideas stretch from small things, like a picture frame or a wallet, to big things, like a complete bathroom redesign.  Recently I landed somewhere in between and decided that I was tired fo the way my bible looked.  (Does that sound bad? I love the Bible, I just want mine to be pretty!)  I wanted something new without losing all of the notes, highlights, and my new tabs.  The only option was to create a new cover that I could personalize as I saw fit.

Waves and Whales Bathroom Makeover

I am so stinkin’ excited to share this room makeover with you today!  It’s been on my to do list for months now and I’ve honestly wanted to do something new and fun for this bathroom since we moved in.  This is our main bathroom that all of our guests use but it’s also Gav and Ro’s shared bathroom.  I wanted them to have a bathroom that was kid friendly and fun.  The old one was definitely neither…Continue reading

Simple DIY Bunny Baskets for Easter

In DIY, Mommyhood

DIY Bunny Baskets

It’s that time of year again, Easter basket time!  For a while, to be honest, I was a little against Easter baskets.  It felt almost like Valentine’s day to me.  Easter is a time of rejoicing and celebrating our risen savior, not bunnies and baskets and eggs filled with sugar.  But, eventually, the excitement got to me and I figured it was all in fun, we definitely teach our kids about the meaning of Easter (well, right now, the 5 year old), and I decided I was being an Easter scrooge.  Today I’m getting in the spirit with some cute and easy DIY bunny baskets. Continue reading
